The Extended Library and the Dedicated Library: A Sceptical Outsider Looks at Union Catalogues and Bibliographic Networks.
Rothstein, Samuel
Reference Librarian, n25-26 p285-306 1989
Discussion of union catalogs and bibliographic networks covers library cooperation, interlibrary lending, the British Library Lending Division, and other functions of bibliographic networks such as cataloging. Criticisms of bibliographic utilities are also presented, including the negative effect of library cooperation on local book availability. Dedicated lending libraries and a government-sponsored library agency are advocated. (51 references) (MES)
